Sometimes a single photo – even a wide angle photo – doesn’t do a location justice. Whether it’s the view off a cliff, or inside an incredible cathedral, we’ve all been to places that cry out for a full 360 degree panorama. Photosynth is the only Windows Phone app that can stitch a full sphere. That’s 360 degrees horizontally and vertically.
New features for Windows Phone 8 include:
- Camera lens integration – Quickly capture and view panoramas by launching Photosynth directly from the built-in camera app
- View shared panoramas – View panoramas shared with you via email, Facebook, or Twitter directly on your mobile device
- More camera controls – Adjust for various lighting conditions by using new exposure and white balance locking options
- General improvements – Enjoy an even more delightful app experience with various bug and stability fixes
If you have a Windows Phone, go to the Windows Phone Marketplace and install it now*.

* Note: Photosynth requires significant memory for stitching, and is only available for Windows Phone devices with at least 512MB of RAM. Some features are only available on Windows Phone 8 devices.
